Hi, I'm Private Nugent from Orlando, Florida I have a question from Tiffany from Phelps, New York; her question is; "What workout plans can I take before joining if any?"

You're going to want to work on your push-ups, sit-ups and your runs. Weight lifting is really not going to do anything for that. What works best is if you do, try to do as many pushups as possible. If your are watching TV or whatever every time a commercial break comes through try to knock out like 15 - 20 pushups you'll notice that it gets easier and easier.

Every night before you go to bed try to do another 30. Same thing with your sit-ups, every morning try to run, and mix it up. Do two miles one morning and the next morning try sprint every 30 seconds then walk for a minute, sprint for 30 seconds and it'll really help your run time.
